Abstract
Numerous graphic novels published in recent years are autobiographical. The autobiographical trend is noticeable in the Finnish comics scene with cartoonists drawing inspiration from real life. Kaisa Leka is a noteworthy Finnish autobiographical comic book artist who has published comics based on her life experiences. Leka’s stories focus on the construction of her identity: who she is as a person, as a comic book artist and as a practitioner of Hare Krishna. Both her feet were amputated due to a congenital malformation. Her comic book I Am Not These Feet (2003) concentrates on the process of the amputation. The chapter discusses the representations of embodiment in I Am Not These Feet by applying the concept of pictorial embodiment refined in the works of comics scholar Elisabeth El Refaie. The emphasis is on the drawing style and pictorial choices used in depicting bodies, disability and gender.
